Alec Baldwin may have deleted his Twitter account, but his vitriolic rant against American Airlines flight attendants didn’t go unnoticed.

After being kicked off a flight for refusing to turn off his mobile device while playing the game Words with Friends, Alec tweeted "Last flight with American, where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950s find jobs as flight attendants,” and has the exclusive response from the Flight Attendants organization.

“While I personally enjoy Words with Friends as much as anybody, passengers can continue to search for that double letter triple word score after takeoff.  I’m sure people are used to Alec Baldwin and his expressions,” Julie Frederick from the Association of Professional Flight Attendants told

“There is a difference between being funny and being mean,” she continued. “Flight attendants have not been the only recipients of Alec Baldwin’s ill temper.

In 2007, a voice recording was released where Baldwin called his little daughter Ireland a “rude, thoughtless little pig” for which he ultimately apologized.

Frederick expressed support for flight attendants and the difficult and sometimes lifesaving job they do.  “If Alec Baldwin needed emergency help on a flight then the ‘retired Catholic school gym teachers’ would save his life for another day of expressing himself,” she said.
